Julia Staniszewski RMT, BHK
Born and raised in Kelowna, Julia is excited to be recently relocated to the Columbia Valley.
Julia graduated from West Coast College of Massage Therapy, Victoria in April 2016, and became a BC Registered Massage Therapist in November of 2016.
She holds a Bachelor in Human Kinetics (UBC Okanagan – 2012), with a focus in Exercise Physiology. In 2013, Julia also completed a 200-hour vinyasa yoga teacher training.
Julia enjoys the challenge of getting to the root of an injury or dysfunction in her clients, and is passionate about treating people of all ages, with varying conditions and needs. With an emphasis on building body-awareness and relaxation, Julia leans towards a slow, deep approach to her treatments. Techniques she has found to be most effective include trigger point therapy, joint mobilizations and focused myofascial release. She also has a firm belief that appropriate homecare is crucial to facilitating the path to health.
**NEW UPDATE!** Julia also has a passion for pre- and post-natal care. She is now able to provide a pregnancy pillowing system for her clients, which allows expecting mothers to lay on their stomachs right up until they are full-term.
Julia has spent the last year and a half working in both a therapeutic-focused clinic in Revelstoke and a local heli-skiing lodge. Honing her skills for both active populations and weekend warriors, Julia is super excited to provide care to the surrounding community. Outside the clinic, Julia enjoys hiking, climbing, surfing, good coffee, and striving to become a better cook. She is passionate about health and wellness, and is looking forward to getting the people of the Columbia Valley pain-free and moving better!
